Microsoft has more or less bowed out of the smartphone market. The company took a hit on its acquisition of Nokia’s smartphone business and it hasn’t released any new devices in quite some time. It’s believed that the company is trying to come up with an entirely new vision for smartphones and that’s obviously going to take time. We’ve recently been seeing photos of Lumia smartphones that were never released […]
It seems that Samsung and Microsoft share a similar vision in which our smartphones are apparently so powerful that they can essentially be turned into desktop computers. Microsoft tried this with Windows Continuum and Samsung has attempted this with the DeX that was launched with the Galaxy S8/S8+.
According to a report from yesterday, it was suggested that Microsoft could be looking to launch a special deal for the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL handsets in the form of a buy-one-get-one promotion. The report also added that the deal would be going live today, and sure enough it looks like the rumors were right.
While the Lumia 950 and 950 XL smartphones are a pretty decent effort by Microsoft in creating a flagship device, it seems that it still wasn’t enough to convince customers to hop on board the Windows 10 Mobile bandwagon, that and its price which is around a typical flagship price meaning that there are probably more than a few who can’t afford it.
If you have it in your heart and mind to pick up a Microsoft Lumia 950 despite both Android and iOS platforms being two of the more popular ones right now (and will rightly remain so in the near future, too), then you might want to be on the lookout for a Lumia 920, Lumia 925 or Lumia 1020. Basically, whenever you bring one of the three mentioned older Lumia […]
Microsoft formally unveiled the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL late last year. These were the first new flagship Lumia handsets in 18 months and were the first devices from the company to be powered by Windows 10 Mobile. That particular update has finally been released for existing Windows Phone 8.1 handsets. Microsoft is now offering the unlocked Lumia 950 for a significant discount that’s valid only for a limited […]
If you happen to be rocking to a Lumia 950 that is subscribed to one of the plans from AT&T, then you should be well pleased to hear that the handset is now on the receiving end of a new firmware update. This is rather significant in a sense that it has been a week since the new operating system update was introduced to the Lumia 950, where it has […]
Last month Microsoft announced a promotion for customers who purchased either the Lumia 950 or the Lumia 950 XL, in which these customers would be entitled to a free one year subscription to Office 365. However the offer was limited to countries such as U.S., UK, Germany, France, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
If you are eyeing the Lumia 950 or the Lumia 950 XL, or if you already own either (or maybe even both) devices, you might be pleased to learn that Microsoft has announced that they will be giving you guys a free year’s subscription to their Office 365 Personal suite of productivity apps.
Well, well, what do we have here? Apparently, the very first Windows 10 update that Microsoft published for their two flagship smartphones, namely the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL, has been taken down not too long right after its roll out. I suppose there is wisdom in going through carrier testing then, as the update happened to be the first one that bypassed carrier testing. Basically, it was […]
Earlier this week we reported that the Lumia 950 would be going on sale today and sure enough it has. Now if you were to buy the phone without actually handling it yourself, you would be taking a rather big leap. However if you’re a fan of the “try before you buy” mantra and want to take the phone for a spin, come 26th November you will be able to.Both […]
Last month Microsoft officially announced two flagship Lumia handsets that many of its fans were waiting for, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, it was confirmed back then that initially the handset will be exclusive to AT&T in the United States. However both the company and carrier didn’t confirm when it will arrive, now AT&T has confirmed the release date for Lumia 950.
Thinking about getting your hands on Microsoft’s flagship smartphone the Lumia 950? The handset was officially announced back in October and as we learnt, the phone would be exclusive to AT&T. Unfortunately what we do not know is when the Lumia 950 will be officially released.However according a report from Windows Central, they have heard from their sources, along with some deduction, that the phone will be launched on the […]
Both the recently launched Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are pretty amazing phones in their own right. They both pack some serious hardware under the hood with specs that rival some Android devices. However it seems that less than a month since both phones were announced, it looks like retailers have begun slashing prices.A couple of weeks ago we reported that Microsoft in the UK had slashed the price […]
It has only been a few weeks since Microsoft unveiled its two new Lumia flagship smartphones, the new flagships arrived after a very long time in which the company only released low-to-mid range smartphones. Now that the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL are out the focus turns to flagship devices destined for 2016 and as per recent rumors that upcoming handsets might be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor.
Earlier this month Microsoft announced the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL Windows 10 Mobile smartphones. Both devices are essentially flagships and they are also Microsoft’s first high-end smartphones, which is actually a pretty big deal. However it seems that less than a month in, Microsoft has already started slashing prices.It has been noted that over in the UK, Microsoft has actually slashed the prices of both phones. The […]
It is said that both the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL smartphones are so close to getting released, you can almost smell them – but the thing is, they do not seem as though they would land in anyone’s hands immediately. Basically, both smartphones have already seen their official landing pages on the Microsoft Store website go live, but the sad thing is, neither are available for purchase. […]
It took Microsoft a lot of time to come out with its new Lumia flagship smartphones, but many weren’t excited to see that AT&T had exclusivity on these handsets. This drew some criticism from T-Mobile CEO John Legere as well who said that Magenta didn’t turn down these handsets, it’s just that Microsoft never offered it to them. Verizon and Microsoft seem to be involved in a little tussle of their […]
A few days back Microsoft finally showed off the two new Lumia handsets that we have been hearing about for months, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL are now official and so is the Display Dock, an accessory which enables the smartphones to double as PCs when hooked up with a monitor. One might think that this dock may not cost that much but it’s actually going to be more expensive […]
As many would have heard by now, the new Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL flagship smartphones will be exclusive to AT&T, something that carriers such as T-Mobile aren’t too happy about. To clarify things, the folks at WinBeta reached out to Microsoft who has since issued a statement on the matter.According to Microsoft, “We’re refocusing our channel strategy, narrowing it in the short-term and planning for broader operator […]
